Description

An amazingly concentrated and generous red wine crafted in the finest Right Bank Bordeaux tradition, it's a full, soft, rich style that completely makes a mockery of judging a wine by its vintage. Those keen wine lovers will remember that 2012 was a tough one in the Hawkes Bay. Cool weather and regular rain washed out many lesser vineyards - and yet, tasting this Unison Reserve Merlot 2012, you would have no idea of this fact! It shows everything we love about Hawkes Bay Bordeaux-style wines, with lots of fruit weight, seamless tannins and a long, harmonious finish. What's more this can be cellared for another 4 to 5 years with confidence.

Smells

Classic Right Bank Bordeaux style nose, showing raspberry, plums, cedar, leather and pencil shavings.

Tastes

Generous fruit packed into a medium-bodied wine with supple tannins, a hint of peppery spice and liquorice and a rounded plummy finish. One of the finest 2012 Hawke's Bay reds we've had the pleasure to try, this is a fantastic opportunity for red wine lovers to drink Reserve red at an everyday price!
